R-DAP is committed to making this website accessible to all users, including those with disabilities. Our goal is to provide online content and services that conform with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act as amended by Congress in 1998 and revised in 2017.

If R-DAP becomes aware that a piece of content on its own website does not conform Section 508 standards, it will act with reasonable speed to update the content so that it conforms to the standards, or it will remove the nonconforming content.
